Life is Beautiful

 

Life is not always a bed of roses.


Because life is a journey, we need to look at the whole of a person's life.  


Judging a life based upon the trials and tribulations is not looking at what was endured or sown in deeds and tests of character.


For instance, would you say Jesus led a tragic life because Christ was crucified?  


What Jesus Christ sacrificed and gave in gifts of teaching, enlightenment and healing transcends beyond the pain he had to endure at the close.  


The legacy of Christ's life remains (in what was sown) and in the hearts of true Christians that believe and follow Jesus's teachings of redemption, love and peace in fellowship.


Much like the movie, "Life is Beautiful", which shows that even in the midst of the most heinous crimes against humanity, there is beauty.


There is still love to be found inside the hearts of the innocent and courage in the hearts of the brave.
